What's Happening In Your World
In the last 30 years, AIDS has claimed around 30 million lives. But now researchers believe that scientific breakthroughs will lead to the end of the AIDS epidemic. There are treatments that have been proven to work that lower the risk of transmitting the disease by 96 percent. Scientists have even come close to curing the disease with the HIV vaccine. Although it is still in the study phase, this research shows promise. Earlier this year, the HIV prevention drug Truvada became FDA approved. If that isn’t enough evidence that we’re about to kick this virus, “the Berlin patient” Timothy Brown became the first person to be cured of AIDS. There are 2.5 million HIV infections every year and over one million of them do not receive proper treatment. 1.4 million people a year are treated with anti-viral drugs that stop the disease from spreading to others and also helps to prolong their lives. It is believed that by 2022 more HIV patients will receive treatment than the annual number of new infections. Those who are more optimistic believe that the beginning of the end of the epidemic could begin as early as 2015. Early HIV treatment can help to prevent contracting the disease and the spread of the virus. These medications eliminate a lot of the risks of the spread of HIV for heteros*xual couples. Truvada was tested in 4,700 heteros*xual couples that consisted of one person who was HIV positive. The pill reduced the risk of transmission by 75 percent. People who are HIV negative and are at high risk for contracting the virus could benefit from taking Truvada. Male circumcision also lowers your risk of contracting the disease by 60 percent. Existing treatment methods have a 95 percent rate of protecting newborns from catching the virus from their mothers.

  1. Royal ce moment passez a vous lire, je vous remercie beaucoup pour cette bonne lecture.

  2. How is a ‘cure’ a nightmare when Ft. Detrick is the one who created the disease in the 1st place? These MF’s con going and coming–making money on the disease AND the cure–just like in the dope game–they make money on the cultivating, distribution, international sale AND the incarcerations that result from the disproportionate targeting of black people for non-violent drug offenses–what would white people do if they didn’t have black people to pimp & exploit?

  3. This is great to hear but please please still protect your safe!
